This book is a theoretical guide to understand a lesser engaged concept, ‘everyday resistance’, particularly in terms of how the everydayness of resistance by different marginalised identities questions multiple structures of power. Everyday life as an important sociological concept to understand the complex social processes embedded in seemingly mundane activities is examined by the authors through an analytical-theoretical approach to understand the complexities of relationships between power and everyday resistance. As an important constituent of everyday life, this was previously systematically debated by de Certeau (1984) and Scott (1985) through concepts like ‘infrapolitics’, ‘off-Kilter resistance’ and ‘hidden transcripts’. Everyday resistance studies concern issues of autonomy, exploring how people liberate themselves from what might undermine their own power and agency.
